Social norms dictate how we perceive ourselves physically as we age, with the preference in appearance being those men with a full head of hair versus men with thinning hair or bald patches. However, genetics and health determine the amount of hair we have as we age, even in women. Though most women don’t experience hair loss to the extent men sometimes do, they too experience thinning and receding hair.
With these changes often comes lowered self-esteem and self-worth. We spend so much time focusing on our physical appearance and how it’s changing that our self-confidence takes a major hit. This depression can negatively impact personal relationships, jobs, and health.
Have you found yourself becoming more isolated from family and friends? Did you once enjoy an active social life but are now avoiding it because of the embarrassment you feel over your hair loss? It’s not uncommon for men and women to overeat, reduce physical exercise activities, and socially isolate themselves. These are all behaviors displayed by someone with lowered self-esteem.
